Since aftermarket wheel options for these Volvos were limited when I first looked about 6 yrs ago, I went w/ the VOXX MG, 1 of the few out there.

The MG's started out on my NA & were 'donated' to the T5M about 3 yrs ago, & another VOXX style, the Misano (no longer available) went on the NA.

I received an 'inside tip' that VOXX finally updated the MG & I actually have the very first set.

I took some quick shots a short while ago & added them to my Volvo gallery.

Soon I'll get my cars back in the showroom & some in front & take some nicer day & nite shots.

*We just did a 'semi-custom' brake job on the NA, but I will have the old MG's restored & put back on the NA before I post new shots.

Hope this works:

(just fixed it & inserted more shots - bad day for photo shoot & took these in a rush, but at least they show the wheels from different angles)

*Edit: They will look MUCH better once I paint them orange
.

I left the recent shots showing the old MG style, for comparison. The new ones appear to have a deeper lip, since the inner ridge/lip just behind the polished outer lip was reduced. The spokes were opened up also.

Re: (greekone)

Works on mine, but just in case others also see a blank page, try this one...

I also added more shots, so even if you already saw the 1st one, it 'technically isn't a...."re-post!"

*The more I compare both wheels, I can't really say that I like the new ones more than the old ones, but I also 'wasn't too sure about' the Misano's (on the white NA) for the first few weeks...then they kind of 'grew on me'.

Nice collection. I must admit I like the 244 best!

Re: (Wagoneer)

Thanks for the comments, guys.

I bought it for my 16 yr old son w/ the idea of lowering it, slapping wheels on it & being done. No such luck. Here's a partial list: full IPd suspension, EVERY brake component replaced/upgraded, A/C converted & blows 45 degrees, 3 row rad., exhaust, ignition, engine seals, RMS, O/D, etc.

Funny remark about the valve cover - this got so 'out of hand' that when we did the RMS & other seals, we 'detailed' the tranny! That ugly manifold is coming off soon & after everything 'under there' is replaced, it will get a red coat to match. 1-2 yrs: turbo conversion & custom interior & ....????

Fun part: driving it over the 6 mo. restoration - Hard part: handing keys over to my son, a 10th grader, who has the 'coolest car' at school!

Wagoneer: I saw some pictures over at VS, when you were doing the turbo upgrade & having some installation issues, but I haven't seen any current pics or videos at the track....Any runs lately, or plans (& pics/videos)?
